Crossroads Community Services was founded in 2001, by First United Methodist Church of Dallas, with the mission to enrich the lives of our neighbors in need by compassionately providing tangible support and established itself as an organization nourishing people and powering change. In 2015, with faithful support of the Church, Crossroads rebranded itself and began operating as an independent nonprofit organization in order to gain wider community support. Today, we continue to nourish people and power change by striving to physically and economically nurture our community's low-income families by providing nutritious food and supportive education.
Through the years, we have learned there are no quick-fix, sound-bite solutions to deeply entrenched social and economic problems. We do this work because no one, especially children, should have to experience the physical and emotional impact of missing multiple meals.
Crossroads has two primary goals:
To help ensure that all people in Dallas County have ready access to nourishing foods
To provide life-skills education that can help reduce obesity in impoverished areas.
